One COVID Treatment May Be Working Better Than Vaccines

I’ve mostly cut myself off from Facebook. I still get one periodically for various reasons, but it’s toxic and has aided our country in becoming as hateful as it is.

Leading up to my abandonment of Facebook, I was starting to “unfollow” some of my Facebook friends because they were overly zealous about people getting vaccinated.

I think everyone is entitled to their opinion, but when they are just trying to beath that propaganda into you over and over, it gets old, and I don’t have the time or patience for it.

Just last night, I happened to get on and see that another friend said something about getting vaccinated. I decided to say something this time because it’s not as black and white as they imagine things to be.

Despite high vaccination rates, new cases increased dramatically. However, when you look at a country like India that was hit HARD by the virus recently, their numbers have plummeted.

I’ve also left Israel on the chart as well because they are even more vaccinated, yet their numbers are sky high.

 

Why? What’s the difference between our two countries?

You may already know the answer to this. The answer is one country is heavily vaccinated, and one is using Ivermectin.

Uttar Pradesh was the first state in the country to introduce large-scale prophylactic and therapeutic use of Ivermectin. In May-June 2020, a team at Agra, led by Dr. Anshul Pareek, administered Ivermectin to all RRT team members in the district on an experimental basis. It was observed that none of them developed Covid-19 despite being in daily contact with patients who had tested positive for the virus,” Uttar Pradesh State Surveillance Officer Vikssendu Agrawal said.

He added that based on the findings from Agra, the state government sanctioned the use of Ivermectin as a prophylactic for all the contacts of Covid patients and later cleared the administration of therapeutic doses for the treatment of such patients.

Claiming that timely introduction of Ivermectin since the first wave has helped the state maintain a relatively low positivity rate despite its high population density, he said, “Despite being the state with the largest population base and a high population density, we have maintained a relatively low positivity rate and cases per million of population”.

He said that apart from aggressive contact tracing and surveillance, the lower positivity and fatality rates may be attributed to the large-scale use of Ivermectin use in the state, adding that the drug has recently been introduced in the National Protocol for Covid treatment and management. “Once the second wave subsides, we would conduct our own study as there has been an emerging body of evidence to substantiate our timely use of Ivermectin from the first wave itself,” Vikasendu told The Indian Express.”
